Lets examine what I said...Per Capita Income
... By definition Per Capita Income takes all income within a given population and divides it equally among the entire population.
You came back with...Median Household Income
...By definition Median Household Income divides the income of each household into 2 equal groups one high and one low with the 50th percentile income being the median income.
If you want to use Median Household Income for the figure that is fine with me. Median Household Income: $146,755 trumps the $25,417 fairly hard and yes the expenses of operating a business in that area are much higher and so are the costs.ZIPskinny demographic information for 06820 - DARIEN CONNECTICUT
